WAG TIME AGAIN….FOR THE 6TH YEAR!
The Wooli Artists Gathering (WAG) is again holding the Wild About Wooli ArtShow, which was initiated in 2011. WAG, formed in November 2010, comprises people connected with Wooli who are artists, or have an interest in art.
The beauty and unique location of Wooli and its surrounding area have attracted many artists and stimulated others to develop their artistic talents. However this growing collection of artists remained largely invisible. Prompted by the Protect Wooli campaign, it was thought important to draw positive attention to the value of Wooli, by collecting and widely promoting its artist community. Those who attend meetings and express interest in the Gathering’s aims are members. There are no requirements except for involvement or interest in art.
The 2016 Wild About Wooli ArtShow will present works of regional artists, including paintings, works on paper, sculptures and fabric art which fit the theme: Inspired by the Coast.
Ian Rees has once again generously provided the venue for the show at the Wooli Hotel Motel.
It opens with a cocktail party on Friday 25th March 2016 at 6.30pm and continues on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March. The Show will be opened by Clarence Valley Councillor Sue Hughes, and entries will once again be judged by Jude McBean, Director of the Grafton Regional Gallery.
All the details you’ll need for the show are here in the Invitation to Artists and in the Public Invitation.
Last year ‘s exhibition was another resounding success and many sales were made.
Artist or not, come along, enjoy a drink and a nibble and admire the works of our talented coastal community. One may even end up on your wall! As in previous years, a donation from proceeds will be made to CCPA-Wooli, the community-based group working with government to develop protection strategies for Wooli beach.
Join us for a fun and inspirational evening.
